Do you often like to go against the grain? Screw currents and trends, you like to stand out from the crowd, right?
Have you ever had an inkling to own the Galaxy S4 in some rather unconventional colors? When I say unconventional, I mean colors other than what has been offered in the past, of course. Four new colors are coming soon, officially from Samsung. If you don’t want to wait around, you can always pick up your Galaxy S4 from ColorWare.
ColorWare basically replaces the external casing of the device with one that has been custom painted and designed by their company. Oddly enough, that’s about the only thing they change on the device, which costs nearly $1,000. That’s quite a hefty price to pay just for a little color in your life.
Nonetheless, for your hard earned one grand you will get a standard GSM unlocked model of the Galaxy S4. If you were expecting some kind of limited edition with souped up specs, think again bucko. You’re paying almost triple the price for the same handset that everyone else is getting, but on the plus side you get some pretty nifty color choices.
ColorWare offers thousands of different color combinations, all of which can be outfitted using one of many different finishes. According to ColorWare:
ColorWare was founded on the idea that electronic devices could be more appealing than the standard colors offered by the original manufacturer. ColorWare products are creative and fashionable, giving their customers something unique.
ColorWare is the only company in the world where you can create your own bespoke electronic device. The range of products spans from headphones to computers, tablets, phones, and gaming consoles.
ColorWare will take the standard black variant of the Galaxy S4 and apply the custom user-specified colors. Estimated shipping time is about 14 days after you place your order.
If you’re willing to drop a grand on a device that’s worth about half that price, be sure to check out ColorWare.
On the flipside, what do you folks think of that price tag? I’m not even going to bother asking if it’s reasonable. I know more than a few resourceful techies that could dismantle the Galaxy S4 themselves and paint it with a custom finish all on their own. No offense to anyone that does want to drop the money, it just doesn’t seem… frugal.
